LAST NIGHT IN CALGARY

CALGARY FLAMES (34-21-4-5) MINNESOTA WILD (35-23-1-5)

2 (SO) 1

SUN THREE STARS:

1. Miikka Kiprusoff, Flames -- Made a few big stops, especially while shorthanded, to keep his team alive and was stellar in the showdown.

2. Josh Harding, Wild -- Played a strong couple of periods in relief of Niklas Backstrom.

3. Robyn Regehr, Flames -- A solid all-around game and a tying goal in the third period.

UNSUNG HERO:

Kristian Huselius' patience paid off, setting up Robyn Regehr for the tying goal.

WHY THE FLAMES WON:

A big goal by Robyn Regehr brought energy back into the Saddledome and goalie Miikka Kiprusoff was unbeatable in the shootout.

HARD HIT:

Brad Stuart slammed his rear end into Mark Parrish in stride along the boards on an offside play.

BIG SAVE:

Miikka Kiprusoff made three incredible stops in the shootout but his best was a split leg save on a spinorama move by Pierre-Marc Bouchard to clinch it.

BURNING QUESTION:

Has Miikka Kiprusoff been studying Wild players in case of a shootout?

WHAT IT MEANS:

The Flames moved into a tie for the division lead while the Wild now sit one point behind.
